Kathabela Wilson
(June Wayne would have loved our group and our visit to her show today. I
t’s diversity, enthusiasm and curiosity looking into her inspiring world.
 In fact she herself had a flair for creating and inspiring groups 
such as ours to met and explore new things. 
Her broad, immense talents applied to her 75 years career, 
till her final days at 93, were sparked by curiosity into every field, 
combining art, science, poetic thinking, 
she made paintings, lithographs and immense tapestries. 
She had a gift for combining such things as DNA chains, fingerprints 
and inspiration from Hokusai’s Great Wave, 
and cosmic imagery with visionary strokes of genius. 
 “I know it’s strange to hear someone my age talk like this but I am very curious” 
she said. 
How has your life and perspective been widened by curiosity? 
How do you explore the details of science, the unknown,
 and combine the diverse cosmic discoveries annd technologies in your tanka.
